    I was looking down over my list of Steam games, 93 games there, and I have to say Arma 3 considering it's top dollar price (when I bought it, it's now listed for $40), although it does a military simulation well, and it's rated 9/10 at Steam, it seemed to be most completely without focus, unless you want to do background work to set up a scenario. This is not what I wanted. :( Standing by to get slammed by someone. :)

    Can't think of any PC game...

    PAC-MAN for The Atari 2600...

    Luckily, a few weeks later, the cart went out and was able to get a full refund (my Mom, anyways).

    Sims. Hate doing the dishes in real life. I hate doing it during my gaming time.

    It's a tie for me, Brink or the PC port of Arkham Knight.

    I tried Black and White. Never saw what all the hubbub was about.

    I remember thinking what a cool idea, but the actual game was kinda blah.

    I've heard this before.


    I played it briefly, not enough to keep me hooked.

    Any EA Sports games. It was money flushed down the toilet.

    SimCity 2013. Luckily I got it from Amazon, who happily refunded me.

    I really wanted Spore, but luckily I experienced a friend's copy first. Narrowly avoided.

    Does that really count? I only buy bundles if it's worth it for the games I actually want.

    Battletoads. So incredibly difficult, it was even fun to play after level 2.

    Civilization VI.

    Civ V was a delight to play, but the revision to Six completely destroyed the experience. Too cluttered and too complicated it stands between the player and enjoyment. It is almost as if the designers had run out of ideas to improve the game and instead went over the top in designing something completely different. A minor cleanup and tweak would have been sufficient.

    Thumbs down for this one.

    I'm not disagreeing with you, but have a gamer friend who loves it. For myself, having played Civ5, it was been there, done that so I did not bite.

    Star Wars Battlefront. I felt like I had seen everything after the first 2 hours.

    I am going to agree with you here.
    I have played the original Civilization (I) through to V and with every release from III I have become more and more disinterested. I gave Civ VI a go and it moulders unplayed.

    IMHO, somewhere along the line the magic was lost.

    MVP Baseball 2015 for PC. Ported from console and unplayable. Literally unplayable.

    Hydlide... I had bought Hydlide as a kid for the NES. I had 20 dollars, I wanted a new game, all other games were 30... Hylide was 20. Worst game ever made, I dare anyone to prove differently.

    Tekken 4 for the PS2, waaaay back when. Absolutely loathed it. Completely took away the magic of timing and heralded the age of the button basher.

    Mind you, Tekken 2 is my absolute favourite, even above 3... so I doubt I'll be getting many agreements. :oops:

    For me it has to be Command and Conquer 4.

    To be fair I thought C&C Generals was weak, but finished it. But the system implemented on 4 was a disgrace in my opinion, by limiting the number of units you can control. I'm sorry but C&C was about the sheer number of units on the map.

    Never finished the game.

    The other more recent that I didn't finish, upon seeing what final part of the game it had to be Mass Effect 3. Loved the first two games and third is quite nice until that point. It feels like the game from that point forward was rushed to be completed, to be release as soon as possible. The story lacked any sentiment of closure for Sheppard. Sure was nice to see what happens to other characters, but man that final lacks cohesion in story wise. It jumps all over the place. My only hope is that Mass Effect Andromeda, doesn't feel rushed, or it will be Mass Effect 3 V2.0.

    Yea. The rewarding part of Civ was building a large and unrealistic empire. And get all the luxury resources. Those are no longer there. Instead, the game is super annoying with barbs, useless vassal states/cities, very complicated tech tree and religion, esp those pesky priests. :(

    Black Ops: Declassified was probably the biggest disappointment to me. Maybe not the worst but certainly the biggest gap between expectation and reality.
